    Congrats--you've got some very nice Altecs! What will you be using them for? Here's what I could find....

    Hi

    Thanks very much for the info. I couldn't find it on the web.

    We were given a couple of wedge monitors and they will probably remain as such in slightly smaller boxes. I'm just repairing the crossovers at the moment. They came with University Sound T-50 horns which can cross at 600Hz. Haven't really tested them yet but they all seem to be working.

    I hear they make great guitar speakers.

    Cheers

    I have 4 414-8Bs, and I use them 2 per side, and they are really sweet sounding even compared to today's modern woofers. I am also using an Altec 806 driver/811 horn and EV T350 super tweeter..

    It looks like the 417 could do lower mids in a PA, and the 414 is a home hifi.
